Scott HP - 7 wts Saltwater Rods Review

Scott HP - 7 wts


Description
Heliply Series rods are Scott's easiest casting, most durable saltwater fly rods. Their 8'8 length makes them balance lighter in the hand than a 9' rod and slice through the wind with less resistance. This allows us to make the rods more forgiving without sacrificing castability on windy days.

Summary:
If gunslingers of the old west had fished, this is the rod they would have chosen. It is a great seven weight for conditions that require a quick draw, such as sight fishing for bone fish, red fish, and striper. The rod fires with a minimum of false casts and shoots short or long with superb accuracy. I'd give it five stars if it had a full wells grip.

Customer Service:
Have never used.

Summary:
A great all-around rod for the Salt. The rod loads easily for short casts, yet still has the power for long casts on windy days. If I only had one saltwater rod, this would be it. Unfortunately, my fly-fishing addiction forces me to have several rods.

Customer Service:
Outstanding
